Recreate the newest runway trends from Paris Fashion Week – Menswear for less using products from M&J Trimming!
Vetements – Spikes
Vetements jumps on the “dad shoe” trend with their new sneakers featured in the Spring 2019 Menswear runway show. They feature large oversized sneakers with embellishments such as paint and large metal spikes. Recreate this look by applying metal spikes to any pair of bulky sneakers and create your own unique pair of trendy dad shoes!
Acne Studios – Fringe
Acne Studios presents fringe in their Spring 2019 Menswear show, part of Paris Fashion Week as well. Fringe is an easy way to make any piece stand out which Acne proved in their designs. Add fringe to the bottom of any piece of outerwear and if you are feeling extra adventurous, add fringe to the seam of your favorite top.
Dior Homme – Embroidery
The collection presented by Dior Homme consisted of basic pieces embellished with detail. The white vinyl coat pictured is adorned with beautiful embroidered floral designs, which you can achieve on your own basics using floral patches. Glue or iron on a collection of your favorite patches onto any piece of outerwear or denim to achieve a look that is elegant and timeless.
Balmain – Buttons
Balmain’s Spring 2019 collection is a bit more toned down than their usual designs, but still features iconic detail. The coats featured are embellished with heavy metal buttons, which can make any jacket look more luxurious. To up-cycle your old coat, add metal buttons to keep it looking new and on trend, which it definitely will be with this addition.
Louis Vuitton – Chains
Virgil Abloh, replacement for Kim Jones as creative director for Louis Vuitton, nailed it with his new menswear collection. To revamp the traditional Louis Vuitton brand, he added large plastic chains to his bags in order to make the luxury brand more fresh and appealing to the younger demographic. To follow this trend, add a plastic chain to any handbag or accessory to revamp your wardrobe!
Ann Demeulemeester – Ribbon
Almost every piece in Demeulemeester’s menswear line featured interesting trim, with the most common being ribbon. She styles ribbon around necklines and draping off of the ends of sleeves. To update any shirt, sew your favorite style of ribbon onto neckline or sleeves so it hangs down, like in the collection. No matter your gender, you can rock ribbon an any of your preexisting garments to stay trendy without breaking the bank.
